Kym Marsh has admitted that she wants her baby and Myleene Klass’s new daughter to be pals and even hopes they start a band together.
The pair first met when they were chosen for pop band Hear’Say and recently gave birth to girls within days of one another. The ‘Coronation Street’ actress – whose baby Polly was born five weeks early – is hopeful the pair will follow the career paths of their famous mothers.
She said: “Congratulations to my friend and former Hear’Say bandmate Myleene Klass on the birth of her daughter, Hero. I love this picture she posted on twitter of her with her older daughter Ava and Hero. She gave birth just two days after I had Polly and, as I said to Myleene, that’s the first two members of the next generation of Hear’Say sorted!
“We’re definitely going to meet up with the girls soon. The name Hero is lovely and really unusual. Although the name Polly isn’t as unusual, a lot of people have commented that you don’t hear it every day.”
Because she was born prematurely, Polly – whose father is Kym’s fiance, ‘Hollyoaks’ star Jamie Lomas – is still in hospital and the actress is unsure how long the infant will require medical care.
Kym – who has children David, 15, and Emily, 13, from a previous relationship – added in her column for new! magazine: “Our darling little Polly is doing very well. She’s still in hospital and we don’t know exactly how long she will have to stay for yet, but she’s definitely a fighter!
“I’m at the hospital every day from first thing in the morning until around 10pm every night. It’s a lovely time for all of us and, of course, the children are excited about having a baby sister, but especially David – which you might not expect from a boy of nearly 16!”
As well as Polly, Jamie also has a son, Billy, five, from a previous relationship.
